Who am I?
You can't wish for anything better than meeting a family like this. People who are capable of opening their hearts and giving everything for the good of others. Meeting Sasha, Juan, Irina and Kirill has enlightened my life and I will always be grateful to them for what they have passed on to me.
I met Sasha and her family in October 2020 in San Cristobal. Honestly speaking, I never met people with such energy! In less than one hour they gave me a lecture and few practices in private - in the way that leads you to more understanding and opening eyes on things around. I left San Cristobal as a new person and with more peace in heart. They have energy to heal, and they help to all who asks... It’s impressive in our days! Everything they do - from their hearts! I m blessed to have them in my path. Thank you, Sasha, Irian and Kirill!
Staying in the sincere, warm and healing aura of this beautiful family I felt myself truly at home.
I was surrounded by gentle care and love of their open hearts, which sometimes is so utterly needed, especially in the crucial moments of life. I am so grateful that I found them who filled up my life with the light of their loving kindness and wisdom..
Yoga of the Spiritual Heart
“Hridaya means Heart. Hridaya Yoga is the yoga of the sweetness of the Heart. It is the Heart of Yoga.”
Hridaya Meditation is based on the Indian tradition of Advaita Vedanta, as taught by the great 20th-century sage Ramana Maharshi and now shared by my teacher Sahajananda, one of the leading meditation teachers in the world. This method is a very profound and yet, very simple: it points directly to the Truth in many different ways so everyone can find the path which best suits him/her.
The teachings present traditional and ancient spiritual principles in accessible and clear way. They invite you to the inner Silence, to the divine essence of your being and, yet, you are not asked to deny the outer world: on the contrary, you are invited to celebrate all the expressions of life as manifestation of the Divine.
You learn how to see the Divine in everything, you reveal your nature of awareness and spaciousness, and this brings freedom and peace, love and acceptance.
